We have specific validators for workflow and those validators are configured on project basis.
Once you change workflow and re publish the workflow the configured validators are removed in jira 8.x versions where as this is not the case with jira 7.x version.
To resolve this issue we used some workaround. Publishing workflow after some changes will trigger an Event (DraftWorkflowPublishedEvent) and we have re configured validators on listening this event which degrading performance while publishing.
Can you please suggest if there is any workaround?
